Gold Coast Bullion is proud to present the 2018 1/4oz British Unicorn Elizabeth II Gold Coin from The Royal Mint (UK).

This coin is the latest release in The Queen’s Beasts Collection. Inspired by ancient symbols of power and identity, the collection brings to life the ten imposing statues that lined the entrance to Westminster Abbey in 1953 at the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen.

According to legend, the unicorn is a very dangerous beast, for which reason on its heraldic representation it is chained. It is thought that the chain was to show a great beast had been tamed to serve the king. As with most chained beasts in heraldry, its strength is emphasised rather than diminished by its shackles.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1/4oz of 9999 Fine Gold
  • The coins are legal tender but are not intended for circulation

The reverse features the Unicorn of Scotland standing on its hind legs, holding the Shield of the Royal Arms of Scotland, chained with a coronet around its neck like a collar. Around, interrupted by the unicorn's head, the inscription 'UNICORN OF SCOTLAND' '1/4 oz · FINE GOLD · 999.9 · 2018'.

The obverse depicts the design of Jody Clarck, the crowned old head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right. Effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait". Lettering: ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D · 25 POUNDS ·. The obverse has a textured background with a geometric pattern.

Condition: Brilliant Uncirculated
